We’re in the early stages of a mass transformation in industry, the third phase of the information age. The first phase saw the introduction of computers, in the second phase they became interconnected and gave rise to the digital economy. The third phase is now among us. Computers and digital technology are now ubiquitous, we have more data than we know what to do with and we’re redefining sectors that seemed untouchable for decades.

We are in the age of realignment and that’s where we find Blockchain technology. A distributed ledger, born from clever mathematics and a desire to transact anonymously while maintaining trust on both sides of the exchange. The world is starting to wake up to the vast number applications for such technology. The internet changed the world in 20 years. Blockchain will do it in 10. Welcome to year one. Welcome to Blockchain Dublin.

Don't miss out on Dublin’s premiere Blockchain event. Things kick off on June 7th with The Blockchain Conference. Hear first hand from the people that are creating the future. Expect inspiration, talks, panels, demos and plenty of time to engage with attendees and speakers.
